It’s only a preseason game, but Cousins is excited to play in front of Vikings fans in their home stadium.

“It’s interesting that I’ve been here, for what seems like for a while now, and yet haven’t really played in the stadium, which is what we’re here to do,” Cousins said Thursday. “The little bit that I’ve been there, it’s a great facility. I’m just so excited to hear the crowd and go through warmups and just get a feel for the game day dynamic. I’m sure it’s going to be second to none in the NFL.]]>

Adam Schein from NFL.com put together his top offenses going into the 2018 season.

The Vikings, with the addition of Kirk Cousins, came in No. 8, right behind the Green Bay Packers.

Here’s a snippet of what Schein wrote about the Vikings:

When we think about the Vikings, everyone rightly points to that imposing defense. But the offense is going to be overpowering in its own right.

Minnesota ranked 10th last season in points scored and 11th with total yards]]>

<![CDATA[Jalen Ramsey thinks Kirk Cousins is a 'winner']]> Jalen Ramsey has some strong thoughts on quarterbacks around the NFL.

He think most aren’t very good.

He thinks Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen is “trash.”

That’s not the case for new Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, though.

“I think he’s good,” Ramsey said. “I think he’s a winner. He’s a hell of a competitor. Coming off the play action, he’s the best quarterback in the league. Play action passing, he’s a hell of a quarterback.]]>

<![CDATA[Kirk Cousins 'coming in with an open mind' about Laquon Treadwell]]> Laquon Treadwell has been the recipient of plenty of criticism over his first two years with the Minnesota Vikings.

The 2016 first-round pick hasn’t lived up to expectations, and he hasn’t proven to be a reliable target for his quarterbacks.

Kirk Cousins hasn’t been around for any of that, though, so he’s working with his young receiver without any preconceived notions.

“Kirk is coming in with an open mind,” head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Tuesday. “He hasn’t read all the things about what people are saying about Treadwell.]]>

<![CDATA[Weekly training camp preview: Minnesota Vikings]]> Kirk Cousins only played one series against the Broncos, he was exactly what Vikings fans hoped for. He was a perfect 4-for-4, throwing for 42 yards and a touchdown to Stefon Diggs. We’ve heard all offseason that Cousins has great chemistry with his receivers, and we saw it on display in his preseason debut. The biggest challenge for Cousins and the Vikings will be the offensive line. The team’s starting left guard Nick Easton will likely miss the season after undergoing neck surgery. The question is whether or not the Vikings have enough depth, or if they’ll revert back to the nightmare that was 2016 up front]]> https://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Kirk_Cousins/5269806/weekly-training-camp-preview-minnesota-vikings 5269806 Sun, 12 Aug 2018 11:48:01 EDT Vikings Wire https://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Kirk_Cousins/5269806/weekly-training-camp-preview-minnesota-vikings <![CDATA[Kirk Cousins, Stefon Diggs get off to a great start]]> Kirk Cousins a ton of money in the offseason.
